As far as I can see without completely changing the way edit/unedit work there is no way to create an administrative unedit, because it would have to try to contact the client that created the edit and try to make it do its side of the unedit, which would make the client into a server (I just barely worked out how edits work since they're a bit bizarre - there is a case for changing them completely but it'd mean a complete break with Unix client compatibility, which I'm not really keen to do). The multiple sandbox thing is correct, btw. If you have run an edit on one sandbox you *must* unedit on that machine as there may be changes that you want to keep and have forgotten about them. IMHO that's why exclusive edits are so bad. They slow people down and don't really give much advantage... but some people want them, so they're there, warts an' all... Tony
